Event description

Description

Many British institutions have not responded well to the educational challenges of the twenty-first century. Perhaps this is because they have failed to redress the misinformation of the past. From the institutionalization of prejudice that saw people of colour branded as non-human; to the presumption that slavery, colonialism and the study of the other is all that is needed to understand an African presence in England. The result is that ‘sacred white spaces’ emerge in English history. These sacred spaces can be the breeding ground for institutional, political, emotional or semantic attacks to defend bastions of privilege. One of these sacred spaces is the Tudor and Stuart period. Dr Onyeka an Alumni of SOAS has made it his life’s work to study Africans in England during this time. Join Dr Onyeka and Narrative Eye as we reveal this hidden history.

Organised by SOAS Students Union as part of the 2017 Black History Month
